Cala Gracio, a tiny slice of the peaceful Ibiza that you thought was only a dream. Just 15 minutes on your own two legs from San Antonio Town, which, by the way, is the clubbing capital of Ibiza, Cala Gracio is perfect if you're looking to recover after an all-nighter and retreat to its two fabulous beaches, Cala Gracio and Cala Gracioneta.
Beyond clubbing and hangovers, Cala Gracio is also spectacular for a family holiday. The curved horseshoe bay that harbours the shallow waters of the main Cala Gracio beach makes it safe for children and for those a little older, the calm waters mean the underwater sights are gorgeous and accessible for snorkelling.
The smaller Cala Gracioneta beach is utterly secluded from the nearby hotels and offers a peace and quiet that, on an island as frantic as Ibiza, is definitely welcome. With our deals on flights, all inclusive accommodation and packages, you can make Cala Gracio your cheap holiday destination of 2017 / 2018.

25 minutes drive from Ibiza Town, 5 minutes drive from San Antonio, perfect for families and hangover recoveries - what else could you ask of Cala Gracio? Peaceful and secluded, the beach still gets busy quickly in the summer seasons as its only 100m long and in high demand. Get there early, if you can! Although that might mean booking a hotel close to the beach, but what's wrong with that?
Day trips to Ibiza Town should be on the top of your list if you're travelling with family, friends or with a partner. You'll appreciate the Dalt Vila - Ibiza's Town old town - which is a maze of quaint cobbled alleyways, medieval buildings and surrounded on all sides by 6th-century walls. Also in Ibiza Town you'll find restaurants around the marina and its fair share of bars and clubs.
Life's a Beach
Much like a secluded Ibizan beach somewhere in the wilderness, the two beaches, Cala Gracio and Cala Gracioneta, are peaceful, quiet and aeons away from the bustle of nearby San Antonio Town. Thanks to its cove surroundings, there's no threat of big waves or a careening speed boat.
Beyond the sand at Cala Gracio there are a few restaurants dotted around, including a beach bar on the sand, for midday refreshments and some shade, but also lines of pine trees, boat houses, shacks and rocky areas for the adventurous types.
